The Conservation Committee under WWF Network Executive Team (NET) laid out the following WWF’s thematic working areas for Nepal:

• Forests
• Conservation science and species
• Climate change adaptation
• Energy policy
• Freshwater

WWF Nepal focuses on all the above thematic areas except marine. WWF Nepal partners with key stakeholders in the conservation of forests and grasslands to maintain the connectivity and contiguity of ecosystems, and in turn, the protection of flagship species and species of special concern.

It also aims to build the resilience of the ecosystem and community in adapting to climate change with a focuson carbon finance and low carbon development based on its experience with REDD+ in TAL and in the alternative energy sector.

Similarly, it builds on its learning from integrated water resource management (IWRM) in Koshi river basin and High Altitude Wetlands (HAW).
